One of the best parings of newer folks in the electronic scene (YourEDM calls them “unstoppable,” and we’d be hard pressed to disagree) is Detroit’s own GRiZ and Gramatik, who originally hails from the country of Slovenia, and now in the New York borough of Brooklyn). Under the moniker “Grizmatik” their new track, “My People,” is now available free to play and download.
If you don’t know GRiZ, you should. He’s a talented 22 year old from Southfield, who has quickly become a force in the game. He has amazing skills for any age, and when he pulls out the saxophone during a performance, from personal experience I can tell you that it gets insane. And Gramatik? He’s a star of the well-known “Pretty Lights” and has moved over 100,000 tracks on Beatport.. no small feat. From a young age, he was influenced by American funk and soul.
These beat brothers are something to sonically behold, if this electro-soul genre is your type of thing.
As of this writing, “My People” has only been out for a couple hours and it’s already racked up more than 8,000 plays on Soundcloud, and the numbers keep spinning up. If you’re into beats, check out this sound above. It’s more full than dubstep, has serious funk influences, and one could imagine a Hart Plaza full of people moving in unison to this.
